Please Help the Pie Crust Challenged!

jenhen2 | Nov 27, 2009 05:05 PM

I admit, I come from a long line of seasoned pie bakers. Grandma, Mom, Aunts, Uncles - they can all make a mean pie crust. Me, not so much. I've tried Grandma's recipe (from an ancient Joy of Cooking), I've tried Cooks Illustrated with vodka, without vodka, all butter, butter and shortening, food processor, stand mixer, by hand with a pastry blender - none of it turns out the perfect pie crust.

Please, tell me your secrets. Details please!!!
